Being a victim or a witness to a crime can often be difficult. It may even be ones’ only experience of the criminal justice system. The responsibility of prosecutors is to treat all victims and witnesses with respect and understanding throughout the justice process.
The welfare of victims of crime and witnesses is keenly protected through the faithful implementation of The Victims of Crime Charter and The Statement on the Treatment of Victims and Witnesses.
The Victims of Crime Charter underscores victims’ rights, obligations and the standard of service that victims can expect from various law enforcement agencies and prosecuting counsel.
It also provides useful information enabling victims and witnesses to contact various government departments and other organisations for advice and assistance.
The Statement on the Treatment of Victims and Witnesses is a practical guide on how prosecutors consider and safeguard the interest of victims and witnesses throughout different stages of court procedures.
We are committed to apply the highest of standard in handling any criminal cases. You will be treated in a sensitive, tailored and professional manner without discrimination of any kind.
By following these guidelines, the public can also be assured that any criminal case would receive the same standard of treatment from the prosecutors, without prejudice or favour to the victim or the suspect.
